Update: 20:00: At least one of the teenagers was trying to get into the Crips gang.
Update: 13:42: You know how they caught these three? The teenagers accused of murdering Melbourne baseball player Chris Lane were dobbed in by a local who claims his son was the trio’s next target. A boy saw them hiding in the park and they told him that he was next. He called his father who called the police. Police were there in three minutes.
The mother of one of the murderers said her son couldn’t have done it and that he was home with her, which isn’t possible.
Three Black Teens Kill White College Student Out of Boredom
Christopher Lane, 22, of Melbourne, Australia, was found dead Friday while visiting the town of Duncan, a well-to-do area where his girlfriend lives. Two Oklahoma teens were charged with his murder, while a third was named an accessory. All three are black and Lane is white.
Chris Lane is a baseball player in his senior year at East Central University in Ada on a baseball scholarship, about 85 miles from where he was shot. He only returned from Australia last week.
His crime? He jogged past three teens who were bored and decided to kill some people, starting with Chris Lane.
As Chris Lane jogged past the murderers, one of them said, ‘There’s our target. ” the police said that “The boy who has talked to us said, ‘We were bored and didn’t have anything to do, so we decided to kill somebody.'”
They followed him in their car as he jogged and shot him in the back.
They planned to kill more people.
Witnesses rushed to help Lane after hearing a shot Friday and seeing him stagger and collapse on a road.
“He was face down on the ground and he was shot in the back with a .22 revolver,” builder Richard Rhodes told Australian broadcasters near a roadside memorial at the scene. “I had another lady stop and we tried CPR on him. And he passed away right here.”
“He didn’t deserve any of this,” Lane’s girlfriend, Sarah Harper, told the Australian Broadcasting Corp. “It’s heartbreaking that it was such a random choice those guys made that drastically altered so many lives in the process.”
“He was an absolute joy to coach,” baseball coach Dino Rosato said in a statement issued by the school. “Chris was an extremely well-respected teammate. … He set a great example for all of his teammates, but more importantly for the younger players. He was a mature student-athlete who his teammates could look to for advice and support.”
Lane’s father, Peter Lane, told media in Australia: “There’s not gonna be any good to come out of this cause it was just so senseless.”
Chancey Lane, 16 years, and James Edwards, 15 years, are the suspected shooters, charged with first degree murder
A third,17-year-old Michael Dewayne Jones, age 17, was accused of being an accessory after the fact and with driving a vehicle while a weapon was discharged. He said in open court “I pulled the trigger,” but the judge directed him to remain quiet and said Tuesday was not the day to discuss the facts of the case. He must have confessed first, but still, if he’s the shooter…? I question his ethnicity though the mainstream media is referring to him as black.
Will Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton launch an investigation and organize a march over the potential racial implications in this case?
Australians, feeling helpless, want to organize a boycott against our entire country over guns. This case was not about guns, it was about three soulless killers who could as easily have run Chris Lane over with their car or used a machete as some are doing in Britain. They were bent on killing for fun.
